I just added my urchant yesterday and i noticed today that one of his spines is laying over to the side. he has moved around a little since i put him in but not to much.

nitrate- 15-20
ph- 8.3
ammonia- 0
nitrite- 0
temp- 78-79

I know they are nocturnal so would they move around more at night

How do these urchins eat i am trying to feed him some seaweed sheets but where is his but and what is his head hahahaha. I put the sheet next to him and tried to slide it under him and his spines started to move towards my tweezers but i dont know if he is eating or not.

thanx everyone
